We all complained that the Internet gave us a lot but invaded our privacy. We said that life was simpler and better before it spread to every aspect of our lives. And we said that we had less time for anything because we were always on call, tethered to the machine.
And now, with the Corona virus outbreak/pandemic, we are so glad to be able to connect remotely. We get news and advice when it is most needed. We find humour and creativity, the main bulwarks against social disintegration. And we are grateful.
